Sydney’s amazing New Year’s Eve Midnight Fireworks will be seen by millions more people around the world via the City of Sydney’s first-ever NYE live stream on the revamped event website, www.sydneynewyearseve.com
“The live stream will give people who’ve never seen our New Year’s Eve fireworks, as well as Sydneysiders abroad, a chance to join in on the celebrations” said Lord Mayor Clober Moore.
NYE 2012 new live stream, created by Telstra, means people who aren’t in Sydney can enjoy the excitement, which this year has the creative input of Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue.
Accompanying the live stream will be an original piece of music by NYE12 Musical Directors Davide Carbone and Josh Abrahams, choreographed in time with the fireworks display.
The new Sydney New Year’s Eve website will host the live stream and enhance the NYE experience for people attending in Sydney, by providing up-to-date event information.
NYE interactive vantage point map will allow people to search the 74 viewing spots around the harbor for services and amenities, such as public transport stops, accessible toilets, path gradients and more.
The revamped website incorporates up-to-the-minute news, information for wheelchair users and people with prams, helpful guides and planning tips, to help make Sydney New Year’s Eve the best yet.
‘Plan Ahead’ section covers tips for visiting Sydney, watching the fireworks, public transport, safe boating, and keeping your pets safe on the night.
